About Us

The Education Foundation Board is composed of local citizens like you who are passionate about education and the opportunities that can be provided to our children.

A BRIEF HISTORY:  Work began on creating a foundation in the fall of 2012. The first public meeting was held on May 14, 2013. The Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools Education Foundation was formed and eventually incorporated, under the Societies Act of the Province of Alberta, on July 11, 2014. Work continued to gain federal Charitable Status with CRA and was finally confirmed on April 22, 2016. Since then, the Foundation, both an incorporated society and a registered charity, has worked to provide annual support to members, via several fundraising events, in two specific ways, the awarding of Student Scholarships, which began in 2018 and the provision of project funds through the Group Futures Fund grant program, which began in 2019.

2021 will see the addition of four (4) Grade Nine Scholarships in the amount of $250 each (Covid-19 postponed the opportunity for 2020, with the cancellation of classes from March to June 2020).
